VESTA – Proactive protection against phishing-based ransomware

Every year, millions of users fall victim to malware threats in various ways. VESTA project aims to develop a European cybersecurity system to proactively protect systems against ransomware attacks. It combines multiple techniques such as AI/ML, Data and knowledge extraction, anti-phishing, human behaviour analysis and Sandboxing, to build a multilayer ransomware attack mitigation platform capable of preventing, defending, and remediating from such attacks. Moreover, VESTA may also tackle the challenges related to the multi-language nature of phishing emails via collaboration between partners from different countries.
